Feb. 23, 2017 – West Bend, WI – After 15 years everything is now happening for the last time at 136 S. Main Street in West Bend as it’s the end of an era for Ann Marie Craig and Century Farmhouse Soap.
On a sunny Tuesday afternoon Craig made the final pour; one soap will be ‘Thank you West Bend’ which is made with bits of lemongrass. “One of the soaps we sold the most of in West Bend was our ‘Lemongrass Safari’ soap which was designed specifically for an event for the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra,” said Craig.
‘Thank you West Bend’ is also scented with Tea Tree oil.
Craig is hefting a pot of liquid soap that feels like it steers north of 40 pounds.
The final soap is named ’15’ for the 15 fabulous years of making soap, buying soap and following Century Farmhouse Soap. As Craig gently placed sheets of wax paper on top of the molds she explained the thought process behind the last soap which smells like grapefruit surrounded by sweet fresh air.
“It’s scented with mint for enthusiasm and fun which is what I hope everyone remembers about the store,” she said.
While Craig prepares to cut the batch of soap later today, the Studio shop IS OPEN this week through Saturday:
Thurs: 10AM – 6PM
Fri: 10AM – 6PM
Sat: 10AM – 4PM
